I know this game is old but I never really got in to the whole Warhammer lore. I was always into DnD. I always felt that learning the DnD lore was enough to keep me interested. I've been playing the Dawn of War series lately and have noticed that in Dark Crusade, each province of land has an Archive with some specific message. These messages seem so random. Most of the people they're referring to in these messages don't even have bio's or anything for that matter. I've tried using Warhammer Wiki and Lexicanum but I couldn't find anything on these people.
I know there are Dawn of War novels, but I haven't gotten them yet. Are these people in the novels or something? I feel like I'm missing something when reading these archives. There's a few Archives that talk about a Magos Exploratory team to recover lost artifacts. Where did these messages come from? When did they happen? Are they happening now while I play the game or what?
Don't you think Gameworks, or whom ever owns the Warhammer franchise, should have used better back stories for these archives?
